Exercise goals for 2020, nearing the finish line

One of my goals for this year in regards to exercise is to run 250 miles and walk 250 miles. There are just over 2 months left and I’ll admit there were days I wasn’t sure I could do it. Today I feel good but with a bit of concern because here in Nashville it’s getting cold. Hey, I’m from Florida… if it’s not sunny and 80, I expect snow.

Me with a slight cool breeze:

So when and where I run or walk will definitely be affected by winter approaching. I’ve been in the habit of walking with my 2 dogs each day, about a mile, but I will be totally transparent– only 1 of us likes the cold weather. So me and my spirited beagle overrule the young adventurer in the family.

Here is a screenshot of my progress so far on the 250/250 goal:

You can see that if I just do about a mile and a half each day (combined) I will reach the goal. Awesome! I’ve been using both the Garmin VivoActive HR and the Forerunner 245. They have been great GPS watches for tracking, as well as entertainment– the Forerunner is the “music” version of the watch so having a playlist right on my wrist has been really nice and convenient.

I am determined to reach this goal, but as the temperature falls I will have to adapt… and probably take some walks and runs in the cold.
